“Rising nearly 800 feet, the Flame Towers will be among the tallest skyscrapers in the country. But it's their constantly curving design that makes these some of the most challenging structures ever attempted.”
Located on a hill overlooking Baku Bay and the old city center, this iconic trio of buildings transforms the city’s skyline and promotes its historic identity. Baku’s history of fire worship provided the inspiration for the design, which consists of three flame-shaped towers, each with a different function, set in a triangular shape. They are visible from most vantage points in the city.
The 39-story residential tower — the tallest of the three — sits to the south, accommodating 130 luxury apartments with stunning views.
The hotel, operated by Fairmont Hotels, is located on the northern corner of the site and consists of 318 rooms over 36 floors.
Located on the west side of the complex, the office tower provides more than 33,000 square meters of flexible, Class A commercial office space.
The retail podium acts as the anchor for the project, providing leisure and retail facilities for the three towers’ residents and visitors
Baku Flame Towers is a project by Azinko Development MMC. HOK was the architect, with DIA Holdings serving as design-build contractor and Hill International providing project management.
